THOU SHALT NOT COVET THAT NEIGHBORS ASS

Fred looked over his hedge everyday to see Mrs. Abernathy sun bathing on her cot. The Abernathys were the new neighbors on his right and he was most interested in watching their daily routines, especially Deidre, Mr. Abernathy's wife, when she would make an appearance everyday at noon...in her bikini.

He would daydream of the flings he would have with her, all in the privacy of his hidden thoughts, where no one could see what he was looking at or what he was doing.

But his wife Sandra saw, from the upstairs bedroom. She wondered why he found their neighbor so interesting, when she was still attractive and more importantly...his wife!

He was interested in his wife, but after all, she was his wife...and you know what they say about forbidden fruit...it was suppose to taste sweeter.

One day, Fred came in from his second shift job at the power company to find a note from his wife which read..."I'm lonely and I'm hurting and I've run away with Joe Persky from next door!" Joe lived on the other side of Fred. While Fred had his eye on Deidre on the right side of their house, his wife was watching him watching Deidre, which caused her to watch and eventually seek affection from Joe on their left.

At least now, Fred had more time to pursue his fantasies that no one else could see.

Moral: Hidden sins will manifest themselves and find their way into the real world with very real consequences.
